Introducing the Essex, a new floorplan debuting in the Classic Series! This home has it all: four bedrooms, a loft, two-and-a-half bathrooms, an open-concept kitchen, a den, a flex room, an upper-floor laundry, and a standard three-car garage. Come explore!
As you enter the front door, a flex room sits to the side of the home. This space can be closed off to create a private study, or leave it as is and transform the space into a formal dining room or secondary living room. As you continue forward, you’ll find a coat closet and an adjacent staircase. From here, the home opens beautifully to the main living spaces, which includes the kitchen, breakfast area, and family room.
The kitchen is lined with lots of cabinetry and has a large center island with a sink. Tucked into the corner of the kitchen is the entry to the private mud room entrance, which provides lots of space for taking off boots and coats during the cold Chicago winters. A spacious pantry for non-perishables and dry goods completes the mud room.
Heading back into the kitchen, you'll find an entryway in the breakfast area that leads to the den, a powder room, and a landing with backyard access. The den can be converted into a first-floor guest room with a walk-in closet, which changes the powder room into a full bathroom. This would make a perfect in-law suite for when family is staying over.
Upstairs, the Essex holds four bedrooms and a loft. The owner’s suite sits in the rear corner of the home and has a private en-suite bathroom attached. The bathroom leads to a large walk-in closet and even a secondary closet near the private water closet. There are two different owner’s bathroom options if you’re looking to change up the standard layout, including one option with a separate soaking tub and shower, and another with a large walk-in shower.
The three secondary bedrooms share no walls, creating lots of privacy within the home. The loft can even be converted to a fifth bedroom if you’d like! Finishing off this floor is the hallway bathroom, the convenient laundry room, and a hallway linen closet.
The Essex is waiting for you to call it home; are you ready? Welcome to Better. Welcome to the Essex!
